Valerie have you thought about his toys? If he had them outside before he broke out the first time, and then inside, they may be a source of oil. If he did have some toys you think may be contaminated, you could fill up a spray bottle full of alcohol and put the toys in the tub and spray away. Then wash everything with soapy hot water. People that use steroids for PI have the probability of the rash returning. If it is not severe and causing him great discomfort, for his sake you should discontinue steroids because of the side effects. It will clear up eventually without them. A child's skin is more tender and you need to moisturize it after the blisters stop oozing. Aveeno makes a shea butter product without mineral oil that works great. Using damp cold cloths is the best way to keep his itches away or rubbing the bumps with wet ice cubes. Get well soon the natural way little one. [email protected]
